 the first jumps are quite small, its a long line. i dunno if you've heard of Danny Pace, hes a local here he did a 360 on it although its a hip so more like a 270. and we get the mud from a dig hole, theres a pic in my random album, its pretty big.

 ok kwl, bt by top soil do u mean loose dirt piled or like solid bricks of dirt going down like steps like the 1s @ the jumps down the botem?
and top soil u mean the 1st layer of dirt during digging b4 u get 2 the clay is it?
thanks its big help 4 when im bulding Big Grin

 yeh the top soil is the shitty first layer and no blocks just loose. you can use blocks if the top layer hold togeather well its quicker but no matter how well you pile them up you end up with lots of spaces between them and they will settle alot more.

 thanks 4 the info bn a big help, nt long cum in frm lking 4 a new spot 2 build @ as my jumps always get wrecked Frown
so it beter 2 use loose dirt ye....if so how wld u do this because the dirt cums out as blocks naturaly, tools 2 brake it up 1st or pile it as it comes?
thanks Big Grin

 yeh loose probably best, just put it on as it comes and stand on it to comapact it, building after rain will help as the ground will be softer and the dirt will stick togeather and compact easier

 you need the dirt quite wet so it sticks when your piling it up. the covers are mainly for the winter when we're not riding there not on all the time if the jumps are a bit dry we let them get wet.

 how do people like you build jumps so solid like

 good clay and lots of hard work, there no special way of doing it you just pile the dirt up and compact it into shape with the back of a spade, after a few weeks it sets rock hard and that it your done
